We enjoyed our two night stay in the Asheville area. The room was clean and in good condition. The breakfast was delicious and the the service was polite. Staff were helpful with questions about the area and recommended restaurants.. We missed the friendly social atmosphere that we have associated with staying at B&B's. That may be attributable to the size...

My husband and I married in the Outer Banks and spent the second half of our honeymoon in the mountains. Bent Creek Lodge is cozy, the staff is warm and accommodating, and the food was delicious. We enjoyed days cruising the Blue Ridge Parkway, evenings in downtown Asheville enjoying the restaurants, and mornings at the lodge. It's lovely to come...

We stayed at the Bent Creek Lodge in September and were very happy with our stay. The breakfast was delicious! The owners were very friendly and so helpful in planning our day. The location is off the beaten path and surrounded by nature. We did everything including hiking, enjoying the views from the Blue Ridge Parkway (right by the lodge),...

An amazing place to stay, very peaceful and in beautiful surroundings. The one thing I wasn't expecting was thelarge amount of rooms they had, which gave it a slightly impersonal feeling. Having said that everything was very efficiently run and they had thought through all the details.

Maybe it was us, but this is not a B&B house with a community breakfast, but a lodge with inn-like rooms, and small tables for breakfast. Beyond that, it was very good. Great location-right off BRP, but up a steep wooded road, but that gives it its hideaway charm. Place was rustic, very clean, nice grounds, accommodating hosts. Tree room...

My husband and I stayed here three nights in the Cherokee room. The room was great, the bed and bedding were so soft. Bathroom was immaculate! This is a beautiful B&B. The inside is so tastefully decorated with fireplaces. cozy couches, bookshelves filled with books and beautiful homey touches. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, with a gorgeous flower garden out...

We visited the lodge September 10-12, 2014. It was our second trip to Bent Creek Lodge. Being from the Outer Banks we always get " the Outer Banks" room. The room only has a double bed, but it is cozy and we love the décor. Both times we stayed while Jodi and Doug were gone and there were interims innkeepers...

This was our first time vacationing in North Carolina, and the best decision we made was selecting Bent Creek Lodge as our "temporary home" during our week stay. Once we checked in, took the tour of the spacious lodge, and settled into our room, we immediately fell in love with our surroundings and wished it wasn't "temporary". Not only was...

Beautiful location just off the Parkway. Quiet and peaceful in a lovely building designed such that all the rooms have access outdoors. Welcome was good with drinks and cakes. Good information available. And a lovely breakfast served on the verandah as we were there in August. Could have stayed much longer without any problem. Thanks for a good but short...
